Creature — Zombie
Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, if it entered from your graveyard or you cast it from your graveyard, return Prized Amalgam from your graveyard to the battlefield tapped at the beginning of the next end step.
Prized Amalgam Discussion

I would lessen the number of Gaea's Blessing to one, Mausoleum Secrets to two, and Murderous Cut to two or three. From there you can add more creatures such as Prized Amalgam , maybe a Syr Konrad, the Grim as honorary Liliana's Indignation s, and possibly Gurmag Angler to beat into the opponent. Any way to increase your creature count to increase the power of your Indignations. Cycling creatures could prove worthwhile for both finding Indignation and increasing its power such as Windcaller Aven and Street Wraith . Lastly more mill rocks could prove worthwhile as it will make Creeping Chill and Narcomoeba better, things like Shriekhorn

I actually haven't been able to test the deck out quite yet since I currently can't afford to buy all the cards on MTGO (my MTG funds are going towards the upcoming Command Fest right now), so this is just a preliminary build that I want to try out when I am able.
Delve creatures were definitely on my radar initially, but they usually have trouble working well with cards like Haunted Dead and Prized Amalgam . After I'm able to try the deck out, I'll definitely reconsider whether I want the delve cards in the list.

After seeing The Great Henge , I'm so happy Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is banned. It would have made The Great Henge crazy cheap, and all the Bloodghast and Prized Amalgam returning to the battlefield would have drawn insane amounts of cards.

Nothing really does what Bloodghast does, but in a Hollow One style deck, ultimately it just needs to be a card there's no problem discarding: you're not using it to trigger Prized Amalgam , or sacrificing it repeatedly to Blood Funnel or anything crazy like that. You're just not crying when you randomly discard it to Burning Inquiry .
Something like Dregscape Zombie , or Sedraxis Specter might do what you need. If you want a creature that doesn't sacrifice at end of turn, consider Reassembling Skeleton or Scrapheap Scrounger . If you want something that reanimates for free, I think Myr Servitor and Akuta, Born of Ash are the only other ones, and they're not great options.

Hey, nice first Commander deck, lots of good cards here :)
My advice is to improve the manabase. 10x Island is a lot when the majority of the early game Zombies you want to play are black especially one drops. Instead of 10 Islands add more Dimir dual lands to have more black sources while also having blue sources. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would also help.
I see Command Tower in the maybeboard; it's the number one card to add to your deck. Thankfully it's not expensive :) Because of budget concerns if you have to cut some cards to clear enough price for dual lands than I would do that. Cards such as Phenax, God of Deception , Rite of Replication , Coat of Arms . These expensive cards are good, but they aren't vital to the Zombie strategy. Other lands to consider adding:
- Underground River
- Watery Grave
- Tainted Isle
- Morphic Pool
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Unclaimed Territory : can help to cast Kefnet.
- Ash Barrens
- Esper Panorama
- Fetid Pools
Other ways to help to get blue mana are by adding some mana rocks:
Buried Alive is good with Scarab tutoring for three creatures and putting them into your graveyard to then exile with Scarab or reanimate. Wonder is good with Buried giving Scarab and all your other creatures flying. Gravecrawler and Prized Amalgam are also good with Buried because they can be reanimated.
Cards with mana costs are going to be problematic to cast because there's so many Swamps in the manabase. The exception is God-Eternal Kefnet because it's a powerful Zombie. My advice is to cut the other double blue cards such as Cancel and replace them with alternative single blue mana cost cards or all black cards. For example, Arcane Denial or Negate can replace Cancel. Good luck with your deck.
